    I don’t it’s right to jump to conclusions and assume this is going to be a train wreck because it is free to play. As mentioned before by OP, Leyou Technologies has established a good track record and understands the games as a service model. Things like pay-to-win scenarios are things they try to avoid putting into their titles. We’ve seen in the job listings that they want to create “fun, balanced experience for all players.”

    Leyou Technologies is also in charge of Warframe which I heard is massively successful. And well... we also have Fortnite. But I don’t talk about that game...

    None of us like to talk about Fortnite.

    "stylized variations" that are reminiscent of "generations", i think it's going to be a wfc siege tie in but thats just a theory, a tf theory

    Edit : I'm still positive siege variations would be seen as skins but know I realize it seems there trying to encompass designs throughout differently continuities

    >Free to play
    >Will be based on G1 or its likeness
    >Will be online

    Yep, none of this sounds exciting. The first Transformers console game in 5 years and this is what we get? As nice as free to play is, I fully expect it to be riddled with micro transactions.

    I’m not sure if it’ll ever be in the league of either of those games.

    Sure, I'll play it. It's free, so I have no reason not to.

    I'm somewhat skeptical of this, seeing as how the last three free online games have went. The first two were never completed, and the third one's an overwatch knockoff that hasn't even seen release in the west.

    People have every right to be skeptical, but I think what we’re getting here is very new in a way.

    The first Transformers Online was cancelled during closed beta.

    Transformers: Universe (unfortunately, awesome game) was shut down 7 months into open beta.

    And the second Chinese Transformers Online by Tencent Games is still alive (surprisingly). I know some people that play the game and according to them, it’s still kicking.

    Judging by the some of the recent press they’ve been doing, Certain Affinity seems extremely confident in their upcoming products. And confidence is always a good sign. Unless it’s a little over the top, which can become a problem.

    I hope we get proper melee this time and not the usual (western) shooter convention where you attack once with the hit button.

    I still say that the greatest Transformers MP game was ROTF. Integrating combat into transformations, the hover mechanic, scale of characters, environments, how every bot was unique right down to the walking animation. Imagine if we got another Shanghai map based on AoE? Playing as Optimus with his sword and shield would have been amazing, or using Grimlock's size, or Lockdown's head cannon. We ask remember how devastating Megatron's canon was.

    Closing Luxoflox was a huge mistake because even their Kung-Fu Panda game was excellent.

    Great post. I wouldn’t mind seeing a three-hit melee/groundpound mechanic.

    I think it was a joke about the blocky designs of G1 characters.
